Another first for me as a new blogger, a challenge was set and not one to shy away from a challenge (my old scares bear witness) the challenge was met. This poem is the result of that challenge set by one of our fellow bloggers for a bit of fun.
I gonna stop saying challenge now… DoH! Moving on.
Although it first got published on SaraInLaLaLand’s blog a few months ago, I thought I’d give a page of its own.
I hope you like.
One Room, One Light
What’s going on in the middle of the night?
That one room with that one light
What’s going on in the middle of the day?
The room with the light that never goes away
Remember, curiosity can be a killer
Your mind may boil, your body may blister
You know what happened to the cat?
It didn’t end well I’ll tell you that
The horrific sight, a man and his wife
Both clinging on for dear life
Playing a game they thought was safe
Then lightening balls began to strafe
The portal opened, a very large hole
A demons hand to take a soul
Their bodies were left all shriveled and white
Just lying their having died of fright
Okay I confess, it’s a story I heard
And agree its rubbish, absurd
But that one room;
With that one light;
Continues to shine;
All day and all night
